Inspiration and remakes

Disturbed Official video for sound of Silence

I posted this link because today it was my strongest Influence. I am often extra critical of remakes, as I feel that the statement that there is nothing new under the sun keeps being proven. I however have a few that I prefer the remakes to the original but not many. This is one of those. The lead singer is perfect for this song. I found in this a bit of inspiration. I have found inspiration for poetry before in songs. The way a song makes me feel or the way certain lines go together. It amazes me what can be inspiration and what can merely be just enjoyable.

I know a lot of people who look for their inspiration only in writing prompts. Or in the world around them. I find inspiration everywhere. Do you?

  1. Music is a huge inspiration for me. I often find myself listening to music while driving and hitting a creative moment. Unfortunately, those are not good moments to stop and write. Sunsets, sunrises, and rain are also inspirational for me.

  2. You are totally right. This song is fantastic and music is definitely a great way to be inspired! And I do find inspiration everywhere but most of them don’t pan out. It is nice to look at the world through a creator’s eyes! Strange buildings, music, nature in general are inspirational for me. I also get a lot of inspiration from pictures, so my husband makes sure I have plenty to work with!
